MMA DFS Playbook: UFC 215

Amanda Nunes of Brazil top and Valentina Shevchenko of Kyrgystan battle during their mixed martial arts bout at UFC 215 in Edmonton Alta. on Saturday

The champion silenced the challenger with another win for her title reign, and the question becomes how long she'll be able to hold on to the belt. Nothing significant. Look at her face? She only had one takedown and she didn't do anything, she just held her position, nothing more.

The champion also appeared to rule out the possibility that she'll fight again this year.

After the fight, many members of the Edmonton Oilers gathered to take a photo with her and she told TSN that she appreciated their support.

With Nunes winning both fights between the two competitors and the decision not being viewed as particularly controversial, an immediate rematch is unlikely. Latifi managed to catch a low kick and bring the fight to the ground, but during a scramble, Pedro managed to get back to his feet Pedro nearly landed a clean head kick on Latifi, but the experienced wrestler used it as another opportunity to secure the round.

In many observers' eyes, Nunes, 15-4, was extremely lucky to retain the title she claimed at UFC 200. Nunes continued to land push kicks, however, and placed the right hand several times during brief exchanges. She fights composed and tends to just break her opponent's spirit.

It was the second time Nunes had beaten Shevchenko in 18 months. I also have a great boxing team around me to create more dynamic striking.

"I want my title and I'm ready to take one more fight against Amanda because I don't agree and I know exactly that it was my fight". Shevchenko got back to her feet, but it was Nunes going all-in for another takedown, and she got it with less than a minute remaining.

The hosts then took a firm grip after Mane's dismissal. We cannot change luck but we can change performance. All three up front were not really involved.

In the co-main event, 10th ranked welterweight Rafael Dos Anjos made short work of sixth ranked Neil Magny, submitting him in the first round.

The Brazilian completely dominated the contest after taking Magny to the ground early in the first.

"It's hard to say right now but totally I won this fight".

Flyweight Henry "The Messenger" Cejudo, looking for another title shot against Demetrious Johnson, nailed Wilson Reis of Brazil square in the jaw, dropping him to the mat, then pounded him into a knockout 25 seconds into the second round.

Cejudo talked post-fight about his "evolution" and the Olympic gold medallist in wrestling has certainly developed. He piled on some grounded shots before the referee stepped in to stop the action.

Swedish veteran Ilir Latifi lived up to his Sledgehammer nickname, lifting up and pile-driving Australian upstart Tyson Pedro head first to the mat in a light heavyweight tilt. The former Strikeforce lightweight champion had no answer for Jeremy Stephen's leg kicks but managed to hobble to the final bell where he lost a one-sided decision on the judges' scorecards.
